Two months after being an iOS exclusive, Twitter’s new live streaming service finally launches on Android. Periscope launched back in January following the release of Meerkat, which is a very similar service that uses Twitters login credentials.
Both apps are very similar, but the Android counterpart features a new control menu for notifications as well as a “return to broadcast” tab which will display after leaving the app if users go to do something else on the phone. Material Design also plays a big part on the Android app.
The new notification system also features a alert on the homescreen which will allow you to get back to the broadcast.
Periscope is available for download on the Google Play Store.
